Linux Distributions

The Linux Distribution Archive is a growing collection of media for the installation of Linux on various systems from the past 20 years. Since its formation in the early 1990s, the open source nature of Linux has ensured great variation in the release of distributions, including variations on floppy disk, CD-ROM, DVD-ROM and online-only.

Easy is a "new paradigm" for a Linux distribution, a blend of the best ideas from Puppy and Quirky, and a fundamental rethink of the security, maintainability and ease-of-use. A good way to explain what Easy Linux is all about, is to follow the user (that's you) experience, from downloading the deployed file, to installing and discovering it's features. To start, you would go to one of the websites hosting Easy Linux and download it... Download Unlike most other Linux distributions,...

The newest offering from Barry Kauler's Quirky test bed built using Ubuntu Wily Werewolf (15.10) as it's base. "The "April" series of Quirky is compiled totally from source packages, using T2 (as described in above link). Quirky "Werewolf" differs in that it is built with Ubuntu 15.10 Wily Werewolf binary DEBs. It must be emphasised that the mere fact of using Ubuntu DEBs does not make Quirky a clone of Ubuntu. Nothing could be further from the truth.  Quirky Werewolf...

The latest incarnation of Barry Kauler's Quirky based on Debian Trusty Tahr Quirky Tahr builds on the same ideas, except is constructed with binary DEB packages from the Ubuntu Trusty Tahr repository. This offers the enormous advantage of compatibility with the large Ubuntu repository, and the Quirky Package Manager can download any package from it. Yet, this is a quirky Linux, quite unique. Instead of Trusty Tahr, you have Quirky Tahr, and the difference has to be experienced! Quirky Tahr is...

the newest release from Barry Kauler the creator of Puppy Linux, Quirky Xerus based on Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus Quirky Linux 8.0 is released. This is codenamed "Xerus", as it has binary compatibility with Ubuntu 16.04 64-bit package repositories. This means that Quirky is able to install DEB packages from these repositories.  Other than that, Quirky is in no way similar to Ubuntu!  8.0 has Linux kernel 4.4.7, SeaMonkey 2.40, and a host of applications to fill every need. As per...

A new release from Puppy Linux creator Barry Kauler. In a nutshell, this is a momentous occasion, as I have for the first time created a "one-stop shop", compiling absolutely everything from source, required to build a Puppy or Puppy-derivative. At first, I compiled for a i686 target, that worked. Then the real test came when I compiled for a "amd64" target, also known as x86_64, for 64-bit Intel CPUs. Compiling was successful and I built a Quirky, codenamed...

Quirky is a "quirky" Linux distribution created by Barry Kauler, that forked from Puppy Linux a few years ago. The original intention was to experiment with new ideas, and Quirky has evolved into an exciting and unique distribution. SlaQ 8.1.6 The predecessor Woof2 had been used to build Puppy from Slackware packages, the most famous of these being Slacko, created by Mick Amadio. Slacko continues to this day as one of the official Puppy builds, created via woof-CE. woofQ required a...

A new Quirky build from Barry Kauler. From Barry: Wary64 has the same code-base as April64. The only difference is smaller size, which is mostly achieved by providing a small subset of the Xorg drivers -- in particular, there is no llvm, mesa, opengl. I also left out Qt4, which is required for the VLC media player. However, I discovered that the Xine media player, which only requires Xlib (not GTK or Qt libs), plays all of my test videos. Xine is small, and works well with external ffmpeg libs....

Quirky Pyro64 is built with packages compiled from source in OpenEmbedded. It will run on PCs with x86_64 (64-bit) CPUs, of at least "core2" vintage.  The download file is only 290MB, yet has an incredible collection of applications, including LibreOffice, Kodi, Gimp, Planner, Pidgin, Dia, Xine, SeaMonkey, Gphoto2, Gparted and Grisbi -- plus lots more! Here are release notes and issues, in no particular order: Kodi and Xine . Two media players. Comparisons please! Kodi is huge, that...

Pyro  compiled in oe-qky-src, my port of OpenEmbedded, cross-compiled on a x86_64 host PC, for a aarch64 target. These packages have been imported into woofQ What I would like to do is boot a aarch64 Easy/Quirky distro on my RPi3. Want to get it going quickly, and the easiest way will be to use the Bamarni Pi64 Debian-based aarch64 distro:
